Im putting toghether a presentation to explain socialism and libertarian socialism to highschool students and was wondering if anyone had any quotes from people involved in the free software movement that relate to libertarian socialism.

Thanks

"The paradigm of competition is a race: by rewarding the winner, we encourage everyone to run faster. When capitalism really works this way, it does a good job; but its defenders are wrong in assuming it always works this way."

Great quote by Richard Stallman

The only problem I have with that: I'm 53 years old. I'm tired of running.
Capitalism doesn't just reward the winner(s). It punishes the losers.
